I love listening to bossa nova music, but when I pick up my guitar to play, I sound like I have no clue what I’m doing. It’s so annoying!

The biggest problem players face when learning bossa nova rhythms (that keeps them stuck in a rut and not experiencing results) is:

Knowing what bossa rhythms sound like, but when you play your guitar, you sound like you’re “faking it” and not playing authentic rhythms.

Sound familiar? Learning bossa nova guitar can be a frustrating experience, especially if you don’t have an organized, proven learning method to guide you.

Have you had any of these common bossa nova guitar learning experiences?

  1. You play a bossa nova tune, but guess at the rhythms, and you guess incorrectly most or all of the time.
  2. You love listening to Tom Jobim and Gilberto Gil, but when you play those same chords on guitar they fall flat, you never sound authentic.
  3. You’ve tried learning bossa nova in the past only to become confused and frustrated by exercises that lead you nowhere in the woodshed.

Over the past 25 years, I've played over 2500 gigs, taught over 8000 private lessons, and given workshops all over the world to guitarists of all levels.

I’ve found that many online courses and teachers overcomplicate bossa nova guitar, making it seem difficult to learn with frustrating exercises that lead you nowhere.

This is absolutely not the case with Bossa Nova Guitar 2.

In this course, I walk you step-by-step through proven methods guaranteed to teach you authentic bossa rhythms, chord shapes, and more.

With Bossa Nova Guitar 2 you benefit from my 25+ years of teaching and performing experience, so you know exactly what to practice for immediate results.


3 Ways This Course Expands Your Playing:

1. Play Proper Bossa Rhythms - Sound like you grew up hanging on a beach in Rio as you learn the exact rhythms, chords, and accents that Brazilian bossa guitarists use in their comping.

2. Comp Over Any Bossa Nova Song With Confidence - Head into your next jam with confidence over ANY bossa song as you expand your confidence with rhythm guitar and the instrument as a whole.

3. Level Up Your Rhythm Guitar Skills - Level up your rhythm guitar skills as you learn new chords, grooves, accents, picking patterns, and more in this course.

"As a female guitarist, Matt Warnock and his "Play Jazz Guitar" FB group has opened up a whole new world for me…

One of true inclusivity, encouragement and off-the-charts inspiration. Not only do I feel respected and motivated, but I've made more progress in one month than in years of other lessons. Matt offers an environment where you don't have to worry about negativity or ego, but can concentrate instead on musical growth and a mutual love of jazz!"

Who is this Course For?

This course is for guitarists looking to learn bossa nova guitar with a proven system of study that expands your chord vocabulary and rhythm skill set.

It's for guitarists who:

  • Struggle to learn rhythms and grooves in the practice room.
  • Love listening to bossa nova but have no idea where to start playing it.
  • Want to learn a quick and easy method to play bossa nova on guitar.
  • Want to stop guessing and want to start playing authentic bossa guitar.

I’ve been playing and teaching bossa nova guitar for over 25 years. During that time, I’ve learned from older players, teachers, albums, transcriptions, and more.

I want to share with you everything I’ve learned about how to play authentic bossa nova guitar while creating hours of fun in the practice room.


Who is this Course NOT For?

As your bossa nova guitar guide, my job is to keep this course positive, encouraging, and welcoming for EVERY guitarist who joins. That’s why this course isn’t for you if…

  • You’re looking for a “Guitar God quick” fix. There’s no such thing as an overnight guitarist. This program is about building a long-term relationship with the guitar that leads with enjoyment and real growth – not hype or impossible promises.

  • You’re not a team player. This isn’t American Idol for guitar, it’s not a competition. The MWG Community is a safe environment for new and experienced guitarists to support and learn from each other. This is for team players who encourage growth in their fellow guitarists – not trolls who heckle their peers.

  • You’re a negative Nelly. If you like to complain, tear down, or argue with other guitarists just for the sake of it, this program isn’t for you. We’re about encouragement, welcoming new players, and positive, constructive feedback. No negative energy or comments allowed in this program.
